Spring Brings Events and Promotions to Downtown Berkley

Spring Brings Events and Promotions to Downtown Berkley

(Downtown Berkley, March 20, 2021)

Berkley, MI – As warmer spring weather approaches, The Berkley Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is kicking off two spring promotions as a fun, safe way for pandemic-weary residents and visitors alike to escape their homes and get out on the town.

“March into Downtown Berkley” runs now to Friday, April 2. During the events, shoppers will earn $20 in Downtown Berkley Bucks (DBB) for every $40 spent at select downtown businesses. During the promotion, anyone who shops or dines at select downtown businesses and submits their receipts along with a mailing address to by April 3 will receive Downtown Berkley Bucks (a maximum of $100 Berkley Bucks earned per individual). Downtown Berkley Bucks can be redeemed at any participating Berkley businesses byMay 14. Some rules and exclusions apply, more information can be found here:

Coinciding with “March into Downtown Berkley” the Berkley DDA is also hosting ‘Ladies Night Out: Take Me Out To Berkley,’ April 1 and 2.  This premier shopping event draws hundreds of women into Berkley’s two charming shopping and dining districts as business owners extend hours and offer in-store deals, discounts and demos, as well as complimentary services and activities geared toward event attendees.

There is no cost to attend, and event goers can simply pick up a map from one of the participating businesses and receive stamps from all shops they visit throughout the night. When participants turn in their map card in at the end of the evening they are entered into a drawing to WIN fabulous prizes from Downtown Berkley businesses. More information can be found here:

“This is a wonderful opportunity for visitors and residents to get out and support our local businesses,” said Alayna Schraffenberger, Downtown Berkley Marketing Chair.  “Downtown Berkley is known for its unique independently-owned small shops, world-class restaurants and bars and eclectic boutiques.  Whether shopping by day or a ‘Ladies Night Out’ on the town, downtown Berkley will be the place to be,”

Downtown Berkley businesses participating in Ladies Night Out include: Vitrine Gallery, Ullman’s Health and Beauty, The Twisted Shamrock, Catching Fireflies, Yellow Door Art Market, Berkley Common, Toadvine Books and Amici’s Kitchen and Living Room. These same businesses, along with Articipate, will be participating in “March into Downtown Berkley.” Other businesses will still be added, so check the websites for updates.

Downtown Berkley is home to two shopping and dining districts, one located along Coolidge Highway and the other along 12 Mile Rd.  Each district is filled with some of metro Detroit’s best small business owners that offer everything from great fashion and fine dining to a variety of arts and handcrafted jewelry and pottery.

To ensure everyone’s safety, physical distancing measures will be in place and complimentary Downtown Berkley masks will be available. There also will be a digital map on the Downtown Berkley website to let event-goers know which businesses are participating and any specials they’re offering during the promotion.
